THE TOUR’s very own Rory Lipede was recently named one of the 8 Most Entertaining Tour Guides in New York City by newyork.com.
Rory has doubled as both a host and a ballerina for THE RIDE, our sister product, and recently made her debut as a Tour Navigator for THE TOUR. You might even spot her in advertisements all over the NYC area!
“Rory Lipede is more than a guide. She’s also an improvisationalist, a comedian — and a ballerina. Working for The Ride was one of Lipede’s first jobs in the city — she started as a dancer and stand-up comedian with the company, and soon moved on to get her official tour guide license and become one of the company’s most popular hosts. It’s her contagious enthusiasm that makes her stand out as a customer favorite. She told us the trick is to “find out who my audience is and tailor the tour just for them. It’s not just about me!” Her goal? To create a “joyful escape for a few New York minutes.” Beyond the guides, the souped-up The Ride itself will keep you plenty entertained, with dozens of performers (both inside and out of the bus), a state-of-the-art sound system and stadium seating.”
